Honoring Christ In The Psalms-Day 1

Our Jesus, experienced the full spectrum of human experience and emotion while on earth. If we are to truly become “Christ-like,” we too are going to have to be equipped for all that life may bring. I believe it is the Psalms that prepare us with such a “strength of soul.” Each day in this study, we will ask you to explore a particular genre of poetic writing in the Psalms. We will ask for you to fellowship with the Lord in prayer...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 1

The Meal and Home In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17-34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...

Worship in the Home Pt. 2

The Opportunity of the Home In Part 1 of our series on worship in the home, we introduced a little word known as paideia. We didn’t really go into much detail about the word (This was intentional), but today we will look at this term a bit more deeply, and we will continue to press it out over the weeks to come.  What the heck does this word mean anyway? We know in the Greco-Roman model of education, paideia was a cultural...

Worship in the Home Pt. 1

A new series from WMC and GCP. Following our Worship Leader Starts @ home. Today we’re beginning a series on what it means to worship and follow Christ in our homes. When I read material written on modern “Worship-Topics” these days, I find 80% of material is primarily framed and formulated for the context of the gathered church in a “building” or “organized service” of some sort. It is also framed around the idea of “Worship...

Reconsidering Why We Sing, Part 1: For The Mind, Body and Soul

Part 1  |  For the Mind, Body and Soul By Dave Yauk Songs are important to us!  They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride but they rise to even higher levels of influence. Songs like My Generation, written by The Who, came to define actual points in history.  Jimi Hendrix defined a time period with All Along the Watchtower.  Fast forward into today with U2’s With or Without You, and again we find that a song’s...

Helping Your Church Navigate Change

“Annie Hawks would be turning over in her grave if she heard that song!” This was the very passionate statement said to me after church one Sunday. We had just done the Matt Maher / Christy Nockles song, “Lord, I Need You”. The song is largely based and/or inspired by the hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour” written by Annie Hawks. And on this particular Sunday, the song was close enough but different...

WMC-0158 – What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church

What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church   We live in a time where it is becoming more and more likely that people are leaving our churches. Not all churches, but a lot of them. Chances are, you know someone(s) who has left the church behind. Maybe they were wounded. Maybe they weren’t. Maybe they’re being selfish. Maybe they’re just tired. Maybe They’re burnt out. Who knows. The question is, what...

The Purpose of Christian Change and What it Means for Worship Leaders

We all know the cliché that change is the only constant—yet, it’s pretty much human nature to struggle when we are hit with change, right? One would expect Christians to be more receptive to change simply because our very faith is built upon the concept of change—the old giving way to the new. Remember how our Lord famously declared, “Behold, I am making ALL things new” (Revelation 21:5), how about that! But when we speak about change...

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes, Turn and Face the Strange: Moving to a New Church

Okay, so last time I quoted The Clash and this time I’m quoting David Bowie.  In my last post “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” I raised a big question many of us in ministry have asked ourselves before, when is it time to move on?  So naturally this brings up the question, what do I do when I get to my new place?  This is something that most people in ministry have experienced at least once, if not multiple times before.  If you...

Leading Through Change

Change.  That word can be a very troubling thing for some people.  And for others, it is a welcomed reprieve from a monotonous pattern.  Regardless of where you personally fall on the continuum, the reality is that at some point in each of our lives, we will be faced with change.  And there’s nothing you can do about it!  But how you react to that change and how you help others walk through change; now that is what you can do...

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The words of the band The Clash have been in my mind for a while now. Should I stay or should I go now? Should I stay or should I go now? If I go, there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know  Now while this song is about a relationship and really has nothing to do with discerning God’s will, it is an interesting question to ponder. We all know that God has a plan, and our lives are just a part of...
